NOTTINGHAM, MD—While residents are still feeling the effects of Monday’s winter storm, two more systems will take aim at Maryland this week, according to the National Weather Service.

Forecasters say there is a slight winter storm threat for Wednesday morning, January 5th. Light freezing rain or freezing drizzle is possible. A light glaze of ice accumulation is possible on roadways.  Should this threat materialize, it may cause travel disruptions, especially during the Wednesday morning commute.



There is also an “enhanced” winter storm threat for Thursday night into Friday, according to NWS. Accumulating snow is likely, with forecasts showing an 80 percent chance of precipitation.

While it is too soon to predict snowfall totals, forecasters say there is “increased potential of more significant travel impacts and closures.”

Currently, the National Weather Service shows a 73 percent chance of 1 inch or more of snowfall in the Baltimore area from Thursday night into Friday and a 60 percent chance of 2 inches or more of accumulation.

Residents should stay tuned to local forecasts.
